ok so I was thinking about something. I am thinking about pulling the trigger on new headunit for my jeep that has ipod connections and HD radio as well as a functioning CD player, LOL mine hasnt worked since I bought the jeep, not a neccesity because I generally dont keep cd's in the jeep, but it would be nice to listen to one every now and then.

anyway, on to my question.
if the new headunit has a 3.5 aux in jack, can I plug a cable from said aux jack to my CB's ext speaker jack and then hear my CB through the jeep's speakers?

Being a Jeep that tends to bounce around. I would suggest a HU that has a USB port. My alpine has a wire that comes out the back for Ipod/USB. Thumbdrive with 450 songs on it sits in the glove box. Completely search able and best of all NEVER skips :)

thank you both for advice.
still not sure what direction I am going yet but pretty much every HU I am looking at has USB.

When I upgraded my head unit I was insistent on getting one with the USB port in the front.
Well, then I found a unit that had pretty lights and colors with the cable that runs out the back into the glove box and the original idea flew out the window.

Since then I have learned that having the AUX cable running into the glove box is a god send. I wouldn't have it any other way. It keeps my iPod hidden when I'm using it and keeps my thumb drives out of the elements and out of sight too.

Friends that I have with the port in the front, several have said they hate it there.
